Former Rockford church trustee sentenced for sexual abuse


A man, who admitted to sexually abusing at least one teenager, is sentenced.

Terry R. Carlson pleaded guilty to aggravated criminal sexual abuse in March.  He was arrested back in 2010 after police say he had sex with a 17 and 15 year old.  Carlson was a trustee for and worked at Kishwaukee Baptist Church.  Prosecutors say he was an advisor and counselor, plus a bus driver and he even taught Sunday School there.  Shortly after Carlson's arrest, church leaders denied that he worked there, and say the allegations didn't happen anywhere near church property.

Carlson was sentenced to three years in prison.  He'll also be on parole for two years after he gets out.
